Technological Advances: A Car Thief's Greatest Assets

Nowadays, car thieves only need a Wi-Fi connection and a few hacking steps they've learned from the Internet to steal your car. In order to prevent your car from being stolen through the use of technological advancements, you should take precautionary measures.

For starters, place your vehicle key fob in a metal container while at home to prevent hackers from accessing the code using an Electronic Signal Amplifier. You also should never leave the key fob on the table while dining at a restaurant or other public eatery places. A restaurant can have unsuspecting diners who are actually hackers in disguise. Lastly, be sure to turn off your vehicle Bluetooth connection when it's not in use to stop thieves from not only stealing your car, but also sensitive data.
